I have a 2003 Jetta and the fuse box is between the dashboard and the drivers side door. There is a lid that covers it on the dashboard side. Inside there is a diagram/fuse card. The card has one top rectangular series of fuses numbered 8 through 23. Below is a square series numbered 24 through 44. The washer fuse is number 24 on the top left of the bottom square series. For me, I checked the fuse and it was good, therefore I am assuming that my pump is dead.

Had the same problem with my 2001 330ci. If not used frequently the pump will get waterlogged and allow fluid to seep into the motor. I was able to disassemble, clean, and rebuild my pump but I would recommend replacing it, it is not expensive at around $20-30 and easy to change.
The washer pump is inserted into a hole on the washer tank itself. It is an interference fit so it will pop out. If you have significant amount of fluid in the tank it will leak out of the hole. There should be one hose connected with a clamp and one electrical connector. I believe there may be a plastic shroud covering it which needs to be unsnapped.

not likely that fuse blew but check fuse box for wiper fuse and see if blown, when u fill fluid, turn ignition on but not running hit squirter and listen for pump noise if noise is present then hit repeatedly and look if there is any leakage dripping and trace leak, if no noise check resivor for debrie floating (posisible blockage) last thing is check for power at pump with wire probs
